JOY Fellowship


Joy Fellowship is the fellowship activity of Senior Adult Ministries. One of the core values of our church is that we support and encourage each other (Fellowship). All activities are open to any Senior Adult in the church.

seniors-joyfellowship-eating-smJOY Fellowship meets monthly (the third Tuesday of each month) in the MPAC center at 12:00 noon. The last couple of months we have had nearly 150 people in attendance! Following an incredible pot-luck luncheon we just have a good time together. A program may include an informative speaker, a musical presentation, or some fun activity.

Our next meeting will be Tuesday, March 18, at 12:00 noon in the MPAC building at the Downtown Campus.  All senior adults are invited to prepare their favorite dish and join us for a fun time of food and fellowship!
